Participate in research
If you are a Monash student or staff member, we invite you to register to participate in our paid experiments. Our experiments are designed to examine how people make decisions. You do not need to have taken economics classes to participate, and no special skills or background are required.
The time that an experiment takes varies but is usually between 30 minutes and 2 hours. How much you earn depends on the experiment and the decisions you make, and may also depend on the decisions of other participants. All earnings are paid to you in cash at the end of a session. You can participate in many experiments, but you usually may not participate in more than one session of the same experiment.
Most experimental sessions take place in MonLEE, which is located in the Menzies Building (building 11) on the Clayton campus, in room E957. The easiest way to get there is via the lifts on the north side of the building.
Your registration information is stored securely, and is for our internal use only (we do not share it with anyone else). It is used by our staff to organise and administer experiments; it also enables us to verify your eligibility for particular experiments.
Once you have registered, you will receive a confirmation email. After this, you will occasionally receive invitation emails for new experiments. To sign up for one of these experiments, simply click on the attached web link (or cut and paste it into a browser). You may participate in as many or as few experiments as you like, and you may cancel your registration at any time.
